Saturated Hydrocarbon - Important Questions & Preparation Tips

Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons.  Saturated means that the hydrocarbon has only single bonds and that the hydrocarbon contains the maximum number of hydrogen atoms for each carbon atom.  Unsaturated hydrocarbons contain multiple bonding and contain less than the maximum number of hydrogens per carbon.

Introduction:

Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons.  Saturated means that the hydrocarbon has only single bonds and that the hydrocarbon contains the maximum number of hydrogen atoms for each carbon atom.  Unsaturated hydrocarbons contain multiple bonding and contain less than the maximum number of hydrogens per carbon.
